Always Bracing Myself for the Worst
Tonight Bart and I went together with Wilson to pick up his friend and we were talking about last night's event and all the kind words, emails, Facebook messages, etc. I've received since I spoke at Sisters in Grace last night. He said, "You should be a pastor." I said, "I don't want to be a pastor." He said, "Hey, it's a calling." And I said, "but it's not a calling. God hasn't called me to be a preacher."
Wilson, from the back seat, pipes up, "It's a good thing He didn't!"
I said, "Why's that?" (cringing and expecting something like 'cuz you'd suck at it, or you'd be horrible" or something like some of the other kids would have said).
He simply said, "Because you're supposed to be helping make families."
I love it when I'm pleasantly surprised!
